On February 16th, 2012, ECCIL wrote a letter to the Minister of Finance, H.E. Mr. Pouphet, to express our need of clarification regarding the possible interpretation of the proposed tax rates contained in the new tax law.
The core of ECCIL argument lies in the following paragraph of the letter:
“In particular it is unclear to companies in the Lao PDR which personal income tax rate they should apply to their employees as there have been multiple conflicting notices from various ministries and departments of the Government of Lao PDR. Thus, it is difficult for such companies to apply any proposed new tax rates starting 1 January 2012.”
